Foster Care Technologies Joins Microsoft ISV Partner Program

Lawrence, KS – Foster Care Technologies, LLC (FCT), the company behind the ECAP foster care Placement Matching System, is excited to announce it has joined Microsoft’s Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner Program. As an ISV partner, we will be working closely with Microsoft personnel, who will provide a variety of resources and information to help us expand our customer base, particularly among public government foster care agencies. We will continue to utilize Microsoft Azure as our data hosting service because of its reliability and data security.

“Microsoft’s expertise and support will help us make ECAP available to more foster care networks, which will allow us to improve the lives of more children across the country,” said Paul Epp, Managing Director of FCT. “ECAP stands for Every Child A Priority, which describes our goal as a company: we make it our priority ensure that every child who enters the foster care system is placed with the best available foster family. We provide a system that was built using years of practice wisdom and research, which now empowers foster care workers to make the best possible placements for every child.”

ECAP’s predictive placement recommendation engine can also now be utilized through Microsoft’s child welfare case management system, which is built on Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft’s CRM platform. This type of interfaced solution will make it easy for agencies to get all the benefits of ECAP without having to leave their primary child welfare case management system.

“Microsoft believes in the importance of data-driven, research-backed solutions that can improve outcomes and create cost savings for child welfare agencies,” said Michael Donlan, vice president, U.S. State and Local Government, Microsoft Corp. “By their joining the Microsoft ISV program, we and Foster Care Technologies can continue to help agencies digitally transform and enable positive impact for the foster care placement community.”
